Today, 30th November, a Sub-top competition was held at Het Keelven in Someren. The 2 ladies, Lottie Fry and Franka Loos, from Team Van Olst were emphatically present and performed very nice tests under the watchful eye of trainer Anne van Olst and our competition groom Claire James.
The exceptionally talented stallion Everdale (Lord Leatherdale x Negro) won the combined Big Tour class with a superb score of 75.38% in the U25 Grand Prix. “Just an incredibly good test with really nice series and a lot of eights for the piaffe and passage sections”, according to a happy Charlotte Fry. Everdale’s sire, Lord Leatherdale (Lord Loxley x Ferragamo), also scored well in the Inter II and was 2nd in this class with 66.39%. “Lord had a couple of small mistakes that prevented a higher score, he didn’t jump through well in a pirouette, but for the two-time series he scored a 9!”
In the ZZ-Z class Lottie made her debut with a Lord Leatherdale-son. This For Your Eyes Only scored well in all sections and narrowly missed the 70%. This combination showed much perspective for the future.
